Whittington Park Football Pitch
Holloway Road
N19 4RS
http://www.better.org.uk/leisure/whittington-park-football-pitch11

Unfortunately, To Madeira have had to withdraw from our planned friendly this Saturday due to a scheduling conflict (i.e. they have to play a cup game this weekend). My attempts to find a replacement opponent have failed, so we’ll revert to our traditional Reds v Blues game.

The usual blurb:

  • we play on a full-sized astro-turf pitch
  • there are changing rooms and toilet facilities
  • 5 min walk from Archway tube station (Northern line)
  • 1 min walk from Upper Holloway train station (Barking - Gospel Oak line)
  • Buses 17, 43, 263 and 271 all stop at Upper Holloway train station
  • arrive at 3:30 PM for warm-up, tactics discussion, pre-match fags, team pictures, etc.
  • kick-off at 4 PM sharp
  • full 2 x 45 minutes and injury time + 15 min break
  • one team will play in red shirts, the other in blue
  • everyone can participate, the skills on display are wide-ranging
  • final teams will be announced in the week leading up to the game
  • 5 pounds each will be collected on the day
  • post-match analysis in the Landseer pub on Landseer Road (5 mins walk away)

Come on, you know you want to. Put your name down by replying below.
